V's stats 28/28/F3B0(65) how do you think shove or fold? His min-raise didn't seem suspicious It's standard play there with his stack size. and table is short handed.

I would prefer a call preflop, with my second choice being a shove.
Yeah it's a minraise but it's UTG and there are 3 short-stacks in the table that can 3bet shove, which you would expect UTG villain to call off always.
I don't think villain is that loose here, but since AJo it's just too strong short-handed, I would say call.
We can't really 3bet since stack sizes are too shallow for that.

I can't play fit or fold with just 12.5BB, I don't have post flop with my stack in a raised pot , I may raise first in but not call someones raise . His raise first in from ep at about 13 77+,ATo A8s. and AJo is the 8.5% range. I didn't check this stat while playing , just thought about it after your comment .

Hey shichi-77

Given villains stats of 28/28 I think we ought to comfortably be shoving the AJ.

If villain was playing tight then I can see us folding the hand because I don't think a tight player will have many raise/folding hands in his range and considering that there are 4 reshove stacks behind him it wouldn't make much sense for a tight guy to raise with the intention of folding many hands at all.

However with that being said, this villain is playing 28/28 so I would expect to have the best hand more often than not so for me it's an easy shove versus a guy playing as aggressive as this.

Thanks, Chris.
